Built with an “API first” philosophy, Kentik ensures that your data is always easy to access. Our Query API lets you generate nearly unlimited types of visualizations and tables—with results returned as images, data, or URLs. You can even copy example code for any query right from the Kentik application. There’s also an extensive set of Admin APIs that automate setup tasks including registering devices, managing users, and specifying tags and custom dimensions.
With so many aspects of today’s business relying on networks, network data is critical for operational and business optimization. But you can’t learn much from data that’s trapped in closed, proprietary systems. Kentik is built for open access and painless integration, so you can take full advantage of all the insights your data can reveal.
With access to Kentik’s full range of dimensions, filtering, and tags, our powerful Query API lets you add network traffic intelligence to all kinds of external systems and processes. Kentik-sourced indicators can be added to a NOC dashboard to provide a unified, multi-level view that’s richer and more informative. And query results can be imported into any other analytics tools and systems for correlation with other datasets.
The K/ML anomaly detection engine becomes even more powerful when combined with K/Automate’s automated notifications and mitigations. Kentik can automatically send notifications to messaging systems such as Slack or PagerDuty, raise trouble tickets in systems such as ServiceNow or OpsGenie, or make webhook calls to user-specified endpoints. Automated corrective actions can also be applied, such as mitigating DDoS attacks via BGP Flowspec or API-level integrations with Radware and A10 solutions.
Kentik’s API-friendly architecture and multi-tenant portal set the stage for delivering customer-level visibility-as-a-service, to build loyalty and enhance revenue. With full API controls for the multi-tenant features, provisioning visibility-as-a-service becomes simple, repeatable, and scalable.
